  1. President Correa pulls out of talks

    ECUADOR: President Rafael Correa will boycott this month’s Summit of the Americas in Colombia because Cuba is not invited, he told the host in a letter on Monday.

    The announcement by the left-wing leader makes him the first of 34 invited presidents to decline to attend the April 14-15 summit of the continent’s leaders in Cartagena.
